Seafaring history

Ragusa and later Dubrovnik were always seafaring cities. They received their wealth by trading goods via the Mediterranean sea and had large and well-known fleets. Therefore it is no surprise that within the old city walls you’ll find a small museum on seafaring history: the Pomorski Muzej or Maritime Museum.

It is located in the Tvrđava Svetog Ivana, a fortification directly next to the old harbor. Just follow the signs to the entrance to the city walls – directly behind the entrance you’ll find the museum. Don’t worry, you don’t need a ticket for the walls to get inside. On two levels you can learn more about the trade history of the city and can see a lot of ship models, maps and other maritime objects. It is not the largest and best museum on maritime trade but well worth a visit.
